How do we know if we have early entry only or soundcheck as well? You said the first 100 tickets get soundcheck. How do we know what we got?

A list will be posted in the events section closer to the date of the show with everyone's name who brought the first 100 tickets for M&G/EE along with it, the 50 names will be posted who just qualified for EE.

Yeah, sound check counts as a meet and greet. The guys will play a few songs and then come down to meet everyone. All the sound checks I've been to, you're separated from the guys by the barricade from the venue but you're still able to take pictures, get stuff signed and talk to the guys.

It's likely just going to be SP.

At my soundcheck party, at first it was just me plus my friend then three other people came so there was only 5 haha. There wasn't a barricade XD.

Well, I've done sound check party in NYC and Toronto and both times there was a barricade. I know someone who had it for London on their last tour and there was also a barricade at that show. Also, with 100 people in the sound checks, I'm sure they will be behind the barricade.

How many presale tickets were given out for each venue? If it's 100 for soundcheck and 50 for just early entry, that means only 150 was given out right? And those that just have early entry, soundcheck people will go back outside at the end of the early entry line before going in or staying inside?

There are probably more tickets than M&G/EE spots as the case usually is.

general admission tix

I've never been to a SP show before, not sure how general admission works, my mom might be a little freaking out if she has to stand the entire show with me. she was thinking of buying two seated tickets tomorow hopefully in good section and then sell the GA tickets, but I dunno,will that ruin my chance of the sound check party and the meet and greet?any ideas on this?

GA is first come first serve.

I doubt it would ruin chances since your name would be on the list. But you could e-mail the fan club just to double check.

Id be afraid to email fan club they probably frown upon the reselling of the GA tx since they were only avail to sp crew members

No, it won't ruin your chances. As long as the initial tickets you purchased were through the pre-sale and qualified for the M&G, you'll be fine!

(just copy pasted this from the other thread...whiiich could probly be deleted now, sorry about that)
sooooo i've never been in an official fan club before so im just curious about this and how it all works: i figure im in the fan club now, im supposed to get all kinds of perks and what not like pre-sales for shows/concerts. so when i went to get in on the pre sale earlier today for the Canadian tour it seemed all i could get was General Admission tickets?? whats up with that?? i mean, i like being upfront and everything and have been for every SP show i've been to in the past but i figure this time i'd rather take a seat....
and the tickets were about $57 a piece and with all the service fee's it came to about $65! every other time i've seen SP play tickets have allllways been about $30!!! then i went to the venues website to check out seating plans and stuff and they have ticket prices listed at $42!
....annyways...regardless of price im still probably going to see them but i think i might just wait till tickets go on sale to the public and see if i can get a stage side seat or something.....but ya, is this how fan club pre-sales usually work (ie. only GA tickets)?? just curious is all....

I'm sure it varies from tour to tour depending on what kind of tickets that the fan club is able to get. I've only ever seen SPC give out GA tickets (with the exception of one show that was a seated event entirely). I think it's due to the fact that most people we are in these clubs would much rather be in a pit, but obviously, that's not always true for everyone. But about the price discrepancy, SPC factors in all of the fees that you pay for the venues. The venue may list the ticket as less but that usually doesn't include all the fees they tack on once you decide to buy them. Tickets usually come out to be the same or slightly cheaper here on SPC.

I can't remember how much I paid for my tickets when I made the trek up to Canada in 08 when SP headlined then but I wouldn't be surprised if it were about the same as with this tour. I mean it is happening in amphitheaters. Not only that, but there are several bigger name bands on this tour so that tends to jack up prices too.

sure i understand that, i love being on the floor and getting to see the guys up close, but i'm buying tickets for a couple other people and they don't really enjoy GA as much as i do, hehe, so i figured i've seen them many times before i'll compromise and grab some seats this time........as for the price it still doesnt make sense. i've seen SP twice in this specific venue before. first time in this venue was $25 total, second time (which was for the last tour) was $28 total. $42 is a bit of a jump but not as bad as paying $65.....i even calculated what taxes would be and this venues service fee is usually $6-$8 which comes up to about $55....so it just is kind of weird to me that the fan club would be selling GA tickets at a higher price then the venue?

....oh and does anyone know how the groupon tickets are working (as im still waiting to get tickets)? ive signed up with groupon a little while ago and they usually email you deals but i havent had anything sent to me about it yet today so i went to the website and there was nothing....any clues?
